whoever decided that boundaries scored is the best tie-breaker after a great world cup cricket final,why not play another super over.

right to be after that joke of a final tbh as he was jammy af (i didnt see him lift the cup so i guess you mean on something happening at that moment,) i dont dislike Novak but Federer was the better player.

the person who deserves a slap is the utter tool came up with that rule to have a tie breaker in the final set. pretty silly to avoid having a clear cut winner in a big final.

a shame as it would of completed the hattrick for a great sporting day.

the tie-breaker rule came in because in previous slams you had those ridiculous long 5th sets and players then having to play again the next day and also was it last year Novak had to play on a Saturday because the 1st semi went on for every on the Friday.

think the rule should be there for early rounds but not for finals,the French open has that rule but US open has the same 12-12 tie breaker and the aussie's go to a 10 point tie breaker at 6-6 in any final set.

Wimbledon wanted to avoid any more 28-26 scorelines in the 5th set and I can’t blame them. I’d maybe tweak the tie-break to the first to 12 points once the scores are tied at 12 games each.

not sure why you dislike the GOAT but its silly Tennis had a good way to settle matches and messed it up.


its fine for the other sets but not the 5th.


and you know Novak was second best, he couldnt win a set without a tiebreaker.

if thats what it takes to separate 2 players then thats the time it should take, for the tournaments no one cares about its fine but at the top one it should be about being the best.
